Help for a friend

Knowing someone you love has been hurt, and may be hurt again can be scary, overwhelming and even frustrating. You may be unsure of what’s happening or how you can help. The decision to leave an abuser or report a crime can only be made by the person experiencing the violence, but you can help your loved ones, friends, or even co-workers stay safe and know they’re not alone.

Knowing someone you love is experiencing violence can be traumatizing in and of itself. If you’re experiencing anxiety, feeling lost, or need support navigating these topics, please call the 24 Hour DVSAS Helpline at 360.715.1563 to find support and guidance in helping your loved ones.
